The Modesto Bee of Modesto, Calif., reports that the growing controversy over RFID identification tags in California has led to proposed legislation that would set clear standards for this technology’s usage by public agencies. Part of Senate Bill 682 would ban RFID cards from being issued to students in K-12 schools over a three-year period after the law took effect. Although the bill is hailed by some as a victory for civil liberties, others say it is an overreaction to a technology that offers real security benefits.
